San Nicolás de Bujaruelo

The magnificent surroundings around the road which leads to San Nicolás de Bujaruelo and the mediaeval bridge alongside it make our journey to the hermitage worthwhile, even despite the fact that the hermitage is in a state of ruin. Bujaruelo is a small town which was established in mediaeval times by the Community of the Valle de Broto to see to people crossing the Pyrenees using the mountain pass which gives it its name.

At the end of the road, after we have crossed waterfalls, streams, magnificent mountains and beautiful vegetation, we find the diminutive Romanesque church from the 13th
century, with one single nave covered with a barrel vault and a semicircular apse covered with a vaulted cul-de-four.

Very close by there is a full centre arch bridge from the same period, which crosses the clear blue water of the River Ara.
